Frills-Free Girl Names

They’ve chosen two great names for their daughters, but now sister number three is on the way! Let’s help them find a not-too-wacky, not-too-common name that’s also frills-free and feminine.

Jennifer writes:

We’re not sure what to name our third daughter, due at the end of June. With less than 6 weeks to go I am starting to panic!

 She says vintage; her partner prefers something more mainstream. Where’s the sweet spot?

Emma writes:

My partner and I are expecting our first together in less than two months! My partner has two daughters already; Olivia Sadie and Lucy Elena and I’ve got another Penelope Tilda. We’re team green, but I have a feeling it’s a girl (which probably means it’s a boy!)

For a boy, we are pretty sure on Hugo. The Hu- part is the first two letters of my MIL‘s maiden name (Hunter), and the -go are the first two letters of my mum’s maiden name (Gordon).

We’re having a lot more trouble with girl’s names. DP’s top name is Ava, which seems too popular. Her second top name is Evelyn, but it’s my goddaughter’s name, and I feel it’s too close for comfort.

My top name is Martha. DP hates it. My second choice would be Dorothy. DP finds it too vintage, and can’t get away from the Wizard of Oz association.

We do both love Felicity and Cecily, but our surnames are very ‘s’ heavy. We like, but don’t love Daphne, Elowen, Georgia, Rowena, Juliet, Delilah, Audrey, Eleanora, Vivian, Marina, Cora, and Arabelle.

Could you please give us some suggestions for this baby, if it’s a girl? Or even just tell us we’re being stupid and we’ve already looked over our perfect name!

Eleonora and Arabella, Scarlett and Juliette.

Whether long-held favorite or guilty pleasure, girly-girl names have an undeniable appeal.

What’s your favorite ultra-feminine name for girls?

And would you use one for your daughter? Why or why not?

Alfred Hitchcock, often referred to as the “Master of Suspense,” worked with forty-seven lead actresses in his five decades of filmmaking, many of them evidence of his penchant for cool blondes. Let’s explore seven of his most memorable leading ladies.
